Pound Mill Mustard Mill Sculpture, Wraysbury Road, Staines, Middlesex
(For Spelthorne Borough Council)
We were appointed by Spelthorne Borough Council to develop a sketch design & themes to convert an unattractive parking area into public open space & to improve the local townscape.
The new public space provides a welcoming setting for the historic brick building that was formerly the Staines West railway station for the branch line to West Drayton.
There are also historical connections with a former mustard mill & the Staines Linoleum factory that were located nearby on the site of the Two Rivers shopping centre. The sculptor John Atkin was commissioned by Spelthorne to produce a steel sculpture that features elements from both the former railway & mustard mill/ linoleum factory site.
The area is now enjoyed by local residents, office workers, & & shoppers alike.
